Malfatta and Punta Vittoria
Live dangerously and conquer Malfatta and Punta Vittoria, two runs in Monte Rosa that strike fear into the hearts of even the hardest of ski bunnies. Accessed via the Punta Indren cable car, they rank among some of the area’s steepest couloirs with gradients between 45 and 60 degrees, and cut through the cliffs like knives above the Bors Glacier. While Canale dell’Aquila and Eagle couloir can be safely tackled without a guide, Malfatta and Punta Vittoria demand the utmost respect and caution – with Malfatta requiring a rope to negotiate a gully to access it.
